According to the latest consensus projections compiled before the four-game ban was overturned, Brady was expected to produce 216.1 fantasy points over 12 weeks, which equates to 288.1 points over a full 16-game season. That’s good enough to put him just outside the top five at the position.
The five quarterbacks projected to be ahead of him are being taken from the second round (Andrew Luck) to the sixth round (Russell Wilson). Matt Ryan, slightly behind, is currently a seventh-round pick in 12-team standard drafts.
That makes Brady a fifth-round pick at best, perhaps reaching as high as Round 4 if you are a big believer in him playing at a high level at age 38.
